FIRE Combustible.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   STRICT HYGIENE!   
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Rest. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. Reacts with strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Relative density (water = 1): see Notes
Solubility in water: see Notes
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 7.5
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): see Notes
Explosive limits, vol% in air: see Notes 
 

NOTES
Boiling point, melting point, relative density, solubility in water, vapour pressure, relative density of the vapour/air mixture, flash point, explosive limits and auto-ignition temperature are unknown in literature.
The substance is combustible but no flash point is available in literature.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
